Car Rider Procedures

John Hanson M.S. Car Rider Procedures In order to ensure the safety of John Hanson students, the following procedures for car rider are in place. All parents/guardians of students who are car riders at John Hanson must abide by the following:


  • Please mark your child’s emergency card as a car rider.


  • At dismissal, students will wait in the classroom until the announcement is made for all car riders to report to the Learning Academy. Car riders are the first students dismissed.

  • Once the student is registered as a car rider, parents will be given a card that can be displayed in their window. Student will be given the same card. If this information matches then students may report directly to the car without being signed out. If student is not registered as car rider then the parent must park in the car lot and report to the academy to pick up their students. (Cars will not be permitted in the bus lot, students will not be picked up in the parking lot but must be signed out in the academy.)

  • For students not listed as a car rider, a photo ID will be required for student release and the individual picking up the student must be indicated on the student’s emergency card. (Students will not be released to anyone who is not listed on the emergency contacts.) Do not assume that staff knows the parent because there may be times in which someone is absent and a different staff member is replacing them. Always bring in your ID.

  • Students needing an early dismissal need to be picked up in the office by 2:45 otherwise students will need to be picked up at 3:05 in the academy.

  • Parents may not pick up other students children without prior written notification that has been approved by administration.

  • Parents must enter and exit the middle entrance at John Hanson both in the morning and afternoon. In the morning students should be dropped off by the gymnasium in order not interfere with bus traffic Please follow the lanes outlined by the cones. Cars are not permitted to pass when dropping off their students. Please have your child ready to get out of the car to keep the flow of traffic running smoothly. Cars should loop around in the parking lot to exit the same way they entered. In the afternoon once buses begin dismissing, all car rider traffic will be held until the last bus leaves the parking lot.

  • Please be watchful of other students in the parking lot and possible walkers coming to and from school. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our children safe. Sincerely, John Hanson Administrative Team
